and jake tapper, david muir and jon karl are standing by. jake? lead us off. >> reporter: well, the obama campaign says they feel vice president biden did the forceful job he needs to do. a top democrat i spoke with earlier was worried that the age difference would play poorly for the vice president, being 69, that he feared he would seem tired. obviously vice president biden came ready to play. i think it's fair to say that jason sudeikis who plays him on "saturday night live" has a lot of ammunition for saturday night. democrats will be energized by the vice president's performance. they will be excited and it tees up president obama well. i agree with nicolle that i think it's different to see how it will play with independents, the moderates. but democrats feel very good about the vice president's performance and feel this will be a good way or the alley-oop for president obama. >> david muir? >> i got to tell you, george, a lot different from last week in denver where i was hearing from key advisers toward the key of the debate that romney made a lot of points on the economy, it was
morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. tonight, right down on that stage, is the one and only showdown between vice president biden and paul ryan. and with the way the first presidential debate has transformed this race, the stakes are as high as they have ever been for a vice presidential debate. paul ryan may not have as much experience as joe biden, but he's done at least eight debates in previous congressional races, including this one, when he first ran for office and was just 27 years old. his opponent said he was young enough to be her son. ryan has never had a debate on a stage anywhere near as big as the one tonight. but two years ago, he did have a memorable faceoff against president obama at a bipartisan health care summit at the white house. >> i've got to tell you, the american people are engaged. and if you think they want a government takeover of health care, i would respectfully submit you're not listening to them. >> reporter: ryan spent a lot of time preparing for this, including numerous debate sessions. >> i like joe personally quite a bit. i just disagree
, george bush and jon stewart having a field day with those sighs. >> i've had a record of that in texas. >> as if the sighing weren't bad enough, gore's behavior got worse. [ laughter ] >> in that same year we remember that moment when al gore got up, walked over towards then governor bush, and this was his reaction. >> trying to get things done, and i believe i can. [ laughter ] >> famous moment. years prior there was president h.w. bush checking his watch at the debates. these have become famous moments. are these debate prep teams telling their candidates, this is what you don't do? >> at this point in time they're emphasizing style as opposed to substance right now because debates that have changed people's minds have all been about physical characteristics and mannerisms really in the modern age and not about the substance of the policy answers, so they're paying a lot of attention to the style and not the substance. >> you can almost watch the debate with the volume down and determine who wins the thing. you point out something else and you were at this next debate. this was an im
, the impressions, the jokes. and abc's jon karl shows us the perils. >> i can't, the third one, i can't. sorry. oops. >> reporter: some debate moments just don't need late-night comedians to be memorable. for the rest, there's "saturday night live." >> let me just sum up. on track. stay the course. 1,000 points of light. >> governor dukakis rebuttal. >> i can't believe i'm losing to this guy. >> reporter: over the years, the "snl" parodies have been more memorable sometimes than the debates themselves. >> can i call you joe? >> of course. >> okay, because i practiced a couple of zingers where i call you joe. >> okay. >> reporter: when you think of palin facing off against biden, you're probably most likely to think of this. >> you know, john mccain and i, we're a couple of mavericks, and gosh darn it, we're going to take that maverick energy right to washington and we're going to use it to fix this financial crisis. >> reporter: the real al gore was so stiff in his first debate -- >> i will put medicare and social security in a lockbox. >> reporter: -- his staff made him watch this. >> one of
with the unemployment number, saying talk like that, quote, should be confined to crazy town. diane? >> all right, jon karl reporting in from washington. >>> and there will be a lot more on all of this, sunday on "this week," george stephanopoulos will break it down with bill o'reilly, james carville and mary matalin. >>> and we turn next to new clues in the mystery surrounding the death of the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens, and three other americans in libya. there is a report that two men from tunisia were held for questioning in turkey. and abc news has a provocative document tonight. it is a request from the americans on the ground in libya for help with protection. it raises the question about the state department's response and abc's jake tapper shows us that document. >> reporter: the members of the u.s. military serving as a security support team at the u.s. embassy in tripoli, libya, wanted to keep a small airplane in the country. according to a government source, that was so the team, charged with providing extra security at diplomatic posts, could travel more efficiently around the country
. abc's jon karl. >> reporter: ah, the vice presidency. two v.p.'s ended up on mt. rushmore. more than a dozen eventually became president. but let's be candid. the office of vice president has usually been the rodney dangerfield of american politics. >> no respect. i don't get no respect at all. >> reporter: just look at the tv show "veep." >> did the president call? >> no. >> no. >> reporter: julia louis-dreyfus plays a v.p. with almost nothing to do. it's not a new phenomenon. the very first veep dramatized on the hbo series "john adams" put it best. >> i am vice president, yes, and in this i am nothing, but i may be everything. >> reporter: over there years, there have been some sordid characters in the office. vice president tompkins, monroe's number two, was often so drunk presiding over the senate that congress refused to pay his full salary. vice president dan quayle had some real responsibilities but he may best be remembered for this ill-fated spelling lesson. >> potato. >> reporter: at the '92 v.p. debate, ross perot's running mate may have unwittingly spoken for all v.p.s.
and cannot do, and abc's jon karl has pored over the 21 pages. >> reporter: rock stars make all kinds of demands when they perform. van halen wants no brown m&ms in the dressing room. mariah carey insists on custom toilet paper, white roses and vanilla aromatherapy candles. obama and romney have demands, too, all in a 21-page debate agreement. tonight, identical director's chairs and foot rests and they must stay in their predesignated area. no wandering around the stage like john mccain or charging your opponent like al gore. and like football, lots of coin tosses, which determines who gets the first question. past candidates had demands too. al gore worried about sweating. wanted the room 55 degrees, and michael dukakis, who you can see was quite a bit shorter and the elder george bush negotiated a little boost hidden beneath the carpet behind the podium. take a look at that again. as dukakis goes back behind the podium, he also gets up onto something the debate commission called the "pitcher's mound." and suddenly he's just about as tall as george bush. the obama/romney agreement s
was the administration's response so confusing? last night, comedian jon stewart took his turn. >> i would say even you would admit, it was not the optimal response, at least to the american people, as far as all of us being on the same page. >> well, here's what i'll say. >> yeah. >> if four americans get killed, it's not optimal. >> right. >> and we're going to fix it. and -- >> all of it. >> all of it. >> reporter: that remains a work in progress. the president has vowed to bring those responsible to justice, but although government officials suggest that members of the extremist group ansar al sharia were involved in the attack, a "new york times" reporter spent two hours on the patio of a crowded luxury hotel last night with a leader of that group, as he sipped a strawberry frappe. this afternoon, republicans in congress released new images from the compound where ambassador chris stevens and three had americans died, including earlier photos from previous attacks in benghazi, highlighting how precarious the security situation had been. they also released this chilling june cable from ambassador s

is on "jay leno." >> what's this thing with trump? >> reporter: at a rally with katy perry and on jon stewart. >> i am doing great. >> reporter: like the fabled thief who said he robbed banks because that's where the money is, the obama campaign says the president is going where the voters are. such as "inside edition." >> "inside edition's" a really popular show. >> reporter: especially the young voters they need to win. the president often focuses on issues like student loans and contraception. the president, in our latest abc news/"washington post" poll, is winning almost two-thirds of voters under 30, and he needs them to turn out in droves. thus, this from the first lady on "jimmy kimmel" -- >> election day! election day! up and at 'em! >> reporter: actress lena dunham from the hbo series "girls" taped this web video ad about "your first time." >> you want to do it with a great guy. >> reporter: your first time voting, that is. and the randy nature of that web ad, of course, illustrates the potential downsides for the president that he risk being seen as unpresidential or unserious. one
